It might not be too late to still find some in grocery stores. The 2 liter bottles have yellow caps with the OU-P to signify that it is kosher for Passover Coke. Sorry I forgot about this, but I don't drink Coke and it was sort of off my somewhat damaged radar.

If you can buy Mexican Coca-Cola in Maryland, its made with cane sugar, not corn syrup. Here it comes in 12 oz. glass bottles with I believe a red cap. Also, I just saw on TV yesterday that Coke Live is made cane sugar and sativa. Im not sure if the sativa would make it non kosher.

Eddie, I know what you meant, but . . .

Just to clarify,  Coke with "sativa" would get you happily stoned (as opposed to indica). 


Not sure if that would be kosher for Passover, but I can imagine its benefits at many Thanksgiving gatherings.

I guess Ive been to Ye Olde Pot Shoppe to often! Plus I never could spell worth a damn. Its stevia, and the name is Coke Life. Here is an article about it. But given a choice, Id go with the sativa, and make it a Happy Holiday, LOL.

Once in a while the past year I buy a few glass bottles of Mexican Coke at a local super market. Its actually pretty good as far as soda goes. Im not a soda drinker since about 20 years ago and on the rare occasion I was having pizza I would always grab a bottle of local Foxon Park soda. Its still made with cane sugar. Last year a friend told me about Mexican coke so I bought a couple. I hadnt drank a Coke in almost 25 years it tasted so bad. That being said the first bottle I tried blew me away. If you havent had a real Coke in ages theres nothing like it. Its about $2.00 a bottle.

Stevia is a natural sweetner discovered by Moiss Bertoni in my hometown (Foz do Iguau, Brazil) right on the borders with Paraguay.

Locally it is also known by the name "ka'a he'" (pronounces Ka-a Hey-E) in Tupi-Guarani.

The industrialized ka'a he' tastes horrible if compared to the real thing.

In my hometown region, it's normal to have ka'a he' as an ornamental plant in most houses. Even more normal is somebody serve tea or coffee and instead of sugar pots, there's a small vase with a young ka'a he' plant. each leaf is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of sugar and it tastes sweet exactly like sugar You just stir the leaf in the cup for a few seconds.

What can be more natural that simply pull a couple of leaves from a plant and stir it in your hot drink?

Strangely, the after taste is also impressive. Even if you put several leaves, to toss a whole plant in the cup, the drink will be super sweet but you won't have that nasty and nauseating taste of excess sugar.

Now, the industrialized powder crap and the sodas made with ka'a he' are terrible. I don't know if my taste is too sensitive of if i'm too used to the real thing straight from the plant but I can taste a horrible chemical after taste, just like any other artificial sweetner.

Pepsi is available year round in cane sugar at the same price as all other Pepsi products. 


Was a raving raging Coke fan until they pulled that switcheroo, masked I think by the OTHER switcheroo to-- and back from-- "new" which tasted like 3 icecubes had melted in it.  "Classic" was never right and I just gave up on soda except for occasional Mexican Coke which tasted 'right' but too expen$ive.


Then Pepsi came out with "throwback" with pure cane and even the classic can at standard price.  Now acclimated to sugar Pepsi, Mexican coke no longer tastes right so for $1.20 a bottle they can keep it.
